In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 1760
You Have Changed
“No!” John stared at me disappointedly. “Why do you think I’m here today? You gave me this right in the past. No matter how willful you used to be in the past, you knew that you could always rely on me and trust me. Back then, I was the only legatee in your will. But now, you don’t even care about your brother and sister-in-law anymore. Letty, you’ve changed.”
Here, he paused for a while and hammered his chest. “I’m very disappointed in you.”
John’s acting was so convincing that I quickly immersed myself in the mood. Out of guilt, tears sprang to my eyes. Just as the tears were about to trickle down my face, I covered my mouth and lowered my face, acting as if I was apologetic and could not face him anymore.
Anyhow, I was not the main protagonist. After I briefly attracted the attention of everyone in the room, Ashton ignored everything that I had done for him and went back to the topic. “If that’s the case, then there’s nothing else to discuss. Do you have to fight against me?”
Spreading his arms, John stated, “You’re the one who wants to fight against me. If you’re willing to divorce Letty and leave everything behind, all the problems will be resolved.”
“I don’t mind leaving everything behind, but you have to know that all the important data of the company is in my brain, and I know the easiest way to destroy it. In the end, what you get is just an empty shell. Not only that, but you might also bring down Stovall Corporation along with it. Are you sure you can afford such consequences?” questioned Ashton solemnly.
Given Ashton’s abilities, all of us knew that it was only a matter of time for him to turn those into reality. The atmosphere turned tense after he finished talking.
“Will you really do that? You were the one who built Fuller Corporation from scratch. Destroying it is equivalent to killing your efforts. You won’t do that.” John smiled and was not threatened by what Ashton said. Out of the blue, he thought of something and continued, “Worse comes to worst, we’ll just go down together. If you’re willing to risk Fuller Corporation, I don’t mind sacrificing Stovall Corporation as well. You can never escape from me.”
With that said, he held Emma’s hand and kissed the back of her hand. Looking at her crystal clear eyes, he said softly, “Don’t worry. As long as Fuller Corporation exists, nothing will happen to your family.”
It was rare that Emma did not express her dismay as she smiled shyly. Seeing that, John was lovestruck and almost forgot that he was still acting. Fortunately, she gave him a side glance in time, and he immediately pulled himself together.
The negotiation had again reached stalemate.
Ashton’s face was frighteningly grim as John was flirting with Emma in front of him. On one side was a lonely man who could not even show his love for the woman he loved. On the other side was a sweet couple who was in love with each other. After comparing their situation, I bet Ashton was seething with anger.
At that moment, Nathaniel, who had been silent for the whole time, put down the spoon in his hand, and his action attracted everyone’s attention.
Subsequently, he wiped his mouth calmly. His movements were elegant, and just when everyone felt that he was not in the situation, he started slowly, “It’s futile to argue any further. We should ask the owner’s opinion.”
Once again, it was silent in the private room. Everyone was deep in thoughts, and no one seemed to understand what he meant.
Placing the napkin on the table, Nathaniel looked in my direction and curled the corners of his lips. “If you don’t want to see the people close to you speak ill of each other, why don’t you make another will and decide the final owner of the shares? As a professional lawyer, it should be a piece of cake for you, right?”
Hearing that, I did not dare to utter a word. I was worried that it would expose my anxiety. After all, that was how the will that authorized the shares to John had come about.
As expected of the opponent that even Ashton is afraid of. Fortunately, I’m a step ahead of him. Otherwise, I won’t have the chance to confront him today.
